5 Reasons to Support The Alzheimers Society of Ireland

Alzheimers Society of Ireland

Hello friends! This is the first in a series of blog posts I will be writing, on each of my 11 amazing charity partners, what they do and why you should support them.

Today, I want to start with The Alzheimers Society of Ireland – who are very close to my heart personally. My lovely Mum, Helen, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in early 2020 at only 69 years of age. This was a huge motivation for me to set up my business and try to make a difference for The Alzheimers Society of Ireland. They are doing absolutely crucial work in each of these 5 areas:

  • Facing the Reality in Ireland: Alzheimer’s on the Rise

Let’s start with the facts – Alzheimer’s is a pressing issue, and Ireland is not immune. The number of cases is expected to double by 2036, hitting around 140,000 individuals. The Alzheimers Society is actively working to address this challenge.

  • Comprehensive Support Services: A Helping Hand

The Alzheimerss Society of Ireland functions as a reliable support system. They offer a range of services – information, counselling, practical assistance, you name it. From early signs to navigating the complexities, they’re on the front lines. Your donation ensures these essential services continue to make a positive impact.

  • Investing in Progress: Research and Innovation

Wondering how we can make strides against Alzheimers? The society invests in research projects to unlock the mysteries of the disease. Your contribution supports these endeavours, contributing to potential ground-breaking discoveries and advancements.

  • Building Awareness: Fighting Stigma

Stigmatizing Alzheimer’s helps no one. The society is actively working to change perceptions through events, educational programs, and advocacy. Your donation plays a role in spreading awareness and fostering a more understanding community.

  • A Personal Connection: Touching Lives

As like me,  the chances are that you know someone affected by Alzheimer’s. Donating to The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland is a tangible way of saying, “I’m here for you.” It’s a compassionate gesture that makes a real difference in the lives of those dealing with Alzheimer’s and their families.

Supporting The Alzheimer’s Society is like extending a helping hand to those in need. Your donation is not just a financial contribution; it’s a statement of solidarity with individuals affected by Alzheimer’s.
